La Voz De M.A.Y.O. Rambo

Written by Henry Barajas
Illustrated by J. Gonzo
Published by Image Comics

La Voz De M.A.Y.O: TATA RAMBO is based on the oral history of Ramon Jaurigue, an orphan and WWII veteran who co-founded the Mexican, American, Yaqui, and Others (M.A.Y.O.) organization, which successfully lobbied the Tucson City Council to improve living and working conditions for members of the Pascua Yaqui tribe. Thanks to this period of activism, the Yaquis were federally recognized as one of the remaining Native American tribes. Meanwhile Ramon’s home life suffered as his focus was pulled from family to wider community, and from domesticity to the adrenaline of the campaign.

A resonant, neglected slice of American history is told for the first time with art by J. GONZO, letter art by BERNARDO BRICE, edited by CLAIRE NAPIER, and LA VOZ DE M.A.Y.O boasts a script by HENRY BARAJAS the great-grandson of Ramon Jaurigue, a.k.a. Tata Rambo.
